A great trio, Carol, and what a fascinating capture to make. We get so many greenfly on our roses and I'm told certain other insects feed on them, but I've never witnessed it. Good for you managing to capture the evidence, and in such detail and clarity. When he's finished there, send him over to me.
Regards, Ronnie.
